HUNGER DRAWS THE MAP A food map of Europe today shows not a single country in which the fu ture does not hold threat of serious difficulties and only a small part which is not rapidly approaching the famine point. With the exception of the Ukraine only those countries which have maintained marine commerce have sufficient food supplies to meet actual needs until next harvest, and even In the Ukraine, with stores accu mulated on the farms, there is famine In the large centers of population. Belgium and northern France, as well as Serbia* appear on the hunger map distinct from the rest of Europe because they stand In a different rela tion from the other nations to the peo ple of the United States. America has for four years maintained the small war rations of Belgium and northern France and is already making special efforts to care for their increased after-the-war needs, which, with those of Serbia, must be Included in this plan, are urgent in the extreme and must have Immediate relief. The gratitude of the Belgian nation for the help America has extended to her during the war constitutes the strongest appeal for us to continue our work there.

WASH., FRIDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1918, sent of government the little nation's first thought was to express her grati tude to the Commission for Relief in Belgium for preserving the lives of millions of her citizens. Germany, on the other linnd, need not figure in such a map for Ameri cans because there is no present Indi cation that we shall be called on at all to take thought for the food needs of Germany. Germany probably can care for her own food problem If slie Is given access to shipping and is enabled to distribute food to the cities with dense populations, which are the trou ble centers. England, France, the Netherlands and Portugal, all of which have been maintained from American supplies, have sufficient food to meet immediate needs, but their fututre presents seri ous difficulties. The same is trite of Spain and the northern neutral coun tries —Norway, Sweden and Denmark —whose ports have been open and who have been able to draw to some degree upon foreign supplies. Most of Russia Is already In the throes of famine, and 40,000,000 people there are beyond the possibility of help. Before another spring thou sands of them inevitably must die.

Truant from Thy worship, tyrant's levy oft did lay. Scornful of Thy Law—yet Thou hast made us prince of nations: Master, we beseech Thee, set the tribute—we will pay! Much our men have tolled: yea, we have borne the saber: Land and sea we chained, yet scorned to do Thee Thy accord: Palterlngs of clay, as meager Titans at Thy labor: Yet Thou dost ordain that w c s hall be Thy chosen, Lord. Long in bitter doubt our lips have railed Thee in defiance, Razed Thy holy temple, cursed Thy image as it fell: Yea. how oft forsaken Thee to seal us false alliance: Lord, In blindness we forgot: We did not serve Thee well. Lord, bestow Thy love In kind as we obeisance, Stainless hold Thy truth, and «>:<! us true upon Its quest' Lord, reprieve our error—hv.mSie us in our complaisance: Speak Thy win, Lord, our hearts will serve Thee unreprest. Pride our uwts have known, O Lord, resentment without reason: Oft the martial passion hath besmirched us in Its name: Yet we bring contrition, never pledge for older treason Master of the Nations, bear forgiveness to our shame. Master, give us strength to triumph o'er the foeman- Hold us in Thy leash until Thy Vengeance fire our hordes: Lord, Thy Will be done—yea, even as Carthage unto Roman, Lord, so be the false that we may conquer with our swords Guardian of truth and right. Preceptor God Eternal. Regent of all Kingdoms, hear our cry our hearts Implore: Guide us to redemption: Let us know Thy Love supernal: Welcome us from exile. Lord, and exile us no more! Lord .what bitter banishment was our exclusion: Fling ajar Thy portals—we are come to do Thy Will: Yea, O Lord, we hunger to be shorn of doubt's confusion: Lord, mayhap Thou dost forget—but we remember still: Yea, so long our battle our endurance slow is failing: Master, show Thy Mercy—hath repentance nor reward? stricken in our peril, we have shamed Thee in our railing: Yet amid the battle Thou hast been our Keeper, Lord. Bow we low in homage for Thy benediction: Say Thou wilt forgive, for io! we render faith to Thee: Set for us Thy errand—we shall sneer at Its affliction: Guide us on our quest. O Lord, that we Thy serfs may be! Light us with Thy stainless Love: attend us in our danger: Pour us Thy libation of Compassion's Perfect Wine- Link with us in Kindredshlp the ex I e and the stranger. And within our Borders, Lord, a sceptre-proved be Thine! Loid. unto Thy Hand we bend for Consecration. Meek for ancient error, withered passion, old regret- Humble and submissive: show Thy Mercy to our Nation: hat the past was faithless, Lord, our hearts do not forget: Mould as one that moulds in clay Thy visage In our faces: mit o.

Amen. gions, with conditions most serious in Finland. Bohemia, Serbia, Roumnnla and Montenegro have already reached the famine point and are suffering a heavy toll of death. The Armenian popula tion Is falling each week us hunger takes Its toll, and in Greece, Albania and Roumunin so serious are the food shortnges that famine Is near. Al though starvation Is not yet Imminent, Italy, Switzerland, Bulgaria and Tur key are In the throes of serious strin gencies. In order to fulfill America's pledge In world relief we will have to export every ton of food which can be han dled through our ports. This means at the very least a minimum of 20,000,000 tons compared with 0,000,000 tons pre war exports and 11,820,000 tons ex ported last year, when we were bound by the ties of war to the European allies. If we fall to lighten the black spots on the hunger map or If we allow any portions to become darker the very peace for which we fought and bled will be threatened. Revolt and anarchy inevitably follow famine. Should this happen we will see In other parts of Europe a repetition of the Russian de bacle and our fight for world peace will have been In vain.
